New Delhi: Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, the famous comedy show of SAB TV, has added another feather to its cap.

The LIMCA Book of Records has pronounced TMKOC as the “Longest Running Comedy Show”.

Produced by Neela Tele Films and conceived and designed by Asit Kumarr Modi, the show enjoys a massive fan following even after eight years of its first episode.

“We had started telecasting the show on 28 July 2008 inspite of adverse comments and advice from people on the very concept and story of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. However, I was confident and so was my entire team and actors. We knew that there was a gaping hole in the entertainment industry for a family entertainer. Today we stand vindicated. This acknowledgement from LIMCA Book of Records proves that show is well liked and has a constant as well as big fan following. Otherwise no show can sustain for so long on any channel. I thank my channel SAB TV for trusting my instincts about the concept,” says Asit Kumarr Modi.

The main cast of the show includes – Dilip Joshi (Jethalal Champaklal Gada), Disha Vakani  (Daya Gada), Bhavya Gandhi (Tapu), Amit Bhatt (Bapuji), Shailesh Lodha (Taarak Mehta) and Neha Mehta (Anjali Mehta).

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah airs from Monday to Friday on SAB TV at 8.30 PM.
